If anyone has any ideas & recommendations for a dark jeans + vest/tie combo I'd appreciate some suggestions.

I guess I'll try that size then.
They run big? maybe.
I actually just found and bought that size on another web site. I hope it's not too small, or too short in the sleeves.

I was looking more online, and I found that this,

They say to size up one, so I went with a 34, what would be my normal size, I suppose. A 32 should be too small for me, certainly if I want to do more layering with it.

If I were to get one pair of high tops... white or black? To be worn with slim fitting jeans. Any specific recommendations in the <150 segment?

I've always dressed fairly well (lots of club monaco) but I'm looking to step it up a bit. Can you recommend me some clothes that will make me feel like the extra money is well spent. Looking for button ups, sweaters, tees, jeans, chinos, side zips, lace up boots, and trainers.

 

Thanks

I want a nice classic hiking boot for the winter. Most of the good ones are like $200 plus and I don't really wanna spend that.

Found these though which are $150 and they look good.

Do you think they're a good buy? Or something else I should go for?

I think I abuse this thread, but just trying to build a wardrobe icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Sorry for the GQ pic, but anyone know of a copy of this shirt? It's rag and bone, but at $255 no way in hell is that in my budget. Thanks.

And actually really digging this too right now: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

RRL Wool Hunting Sweater. Anybody have thoughts on it? Or even better fit pics if you own it.

Trying to find a brown boot that I can beat to death with six months of continuous wear while still looking good.  Serious about the 'beat to death' part.  These things need to be able to eat mud - usability is key.

So I finally have enough money to get myself a decent waxed cotton jacket, and I'm sort of worried about barbours being too boxy, so two questions. Have any of you had your barbour jackets slimmed down? And could recommend some good alternatives to Barbour in the 200-400 dollar price range?

I've been wondering the same thing about Barbours, whether they'd look good slimmed down. Any case, there have been a few waxed jackets (including a couple from Rag and Bone) in B&S lately; used, but around or below $200.

For $20, you can also grab your own block of wax and transform any kind of Barbour-esque coat you might have lying around. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hey, I'm looking for good slim-fitting BDs. I have one plaid-ish gitman button down thats size medium and fits pretty well, but when i tried to purchase a gitman oxford it was giving way too much of a hip flare.

People say bring it to your tailor and he can dart it, but honestly... what am I paying for the shirt?

I'm 6 feet, 170 lbs. I'm lean, and slightly muscular.

I'm just looking for good Button Downs that I can rely on and will look good on me, and that I can find on B&S or SuFu for under retail. I hear BoO makes good shirts that are fitted and don't flare? Any other options?

Should I just get a good quality shirt and have a tailor dart it or whatever it is? How much would this cost and what does it do exactly?

Thanks.

just go to a local h&m, zara, uniqlo what have you if you're so annoyed that a relatively expensive off the rack shirt doesnt fit you perfectly

my god....

you could prolly just call a tailor and ask him about his prices instead of asking us....
post #4032 of 4947
^ you seem more annoyed than you make me out to be.

nowhere do you justify expensive shirts, i know nothing about tailoring, and if anyone can offer better advice please do so. foo.gif

Tough luck finding the perfect shirt. If you like it enough, spend the 10 bucks to get it tailored.

Otherwise, keep looking and try out other brands. Gant, BoO, APC, etc. etc.

I'm looking for a mid-weight jacket now that Fall's finally here in VA. Budget's 200-300 dollars.

I'm generally wearing APCs, a pair of brown boots, and a button-down. I looked at J. Crew, Land's End Canvass, and L.L. Bean but didn't find anything I liked. Want something in cotton in a dark neutral color, perhaps navy. Some items at A&F (I just know how much love that brand gets around here) looked close to what I want; however the sleeves are too long.

Something like this under $100?
